Summer’s Bounty! There is nothing like fresh Basil. You wither like it or don’t… Hubbyman falls into the “Don’t” category and I fall into the “LOVE” category! I love to make up fresh pesto when I get a harvest of Basil.. however this batch is from a local farm about a mile away, Simpson’s®.I wasn’t able to grow my own this year, which is a first for me, so I went to see Mrs. Sandra and she helped me out!
My Pesto ( dairy free)
Slowly add extra virgin olive oil in a steady drizzle as you pulse the processor on and off. Process until it becomes a smooth, light paste. Add enough olive oil to keep it moist and spreadable. ( you can keep it chunkier if you don’t process it as much the first time)
Season with sea salt, to taste.
